Global Connectivity Anywhere Parked or On-The-Move

The EXPLORER 325 from Cobham is a compact on-the-move BGAN antenna. The system consists of a transceiver, an IP handset, and a roof mag-mount antenna. Simply connect a laptop or wireless access point to the transceiver’s Ethernet port, turn the unit on and you’re online anywhere and any time.

The antenna has built-in magnetic roof mounts and may be mounted on an angle on the roof. The antenna connects via a cable to the controller/transceiver that provides an Ethernet port and a phone port for broadband Internet and phone. As long as there is line-of-sight to the geostationary satellite, connectivity is global with Ground Control BGAN Service.
